Urban Fashions for Full Figure Women with Inverted Triangle Shapes

Earlier this year PCO-S commented, on a Baby Phat sale I posted about the trouble of being a full figure woman, with a small rump.
Since then I, who have the same problem, have been trying to get around to consolidating my experiences with urban fashions and my inverted triangle figure.

While I spend plenty of time in this new article on tops and dresses, one of the main problems with this shape is, as PCO-S pointed out, is that plus size jeans tend to be too big.

Not so with Baby Phat Plus Size Jeans! I go into more detail about them and my testing their average size women’s leggings in my Urban Fashions for Inverted Triangle Shape Full Figure Women article.

I find I have to wear Baby Phat plus size jeans several times without washing, before they slowly become loose, front and back.
Now I have tried their women’s size 13 in their slim skinny jeggings, and find even though my waist is many inches than their size chart says a women’s size 13 is, they fit! With easy, and like their plus size jeans, not baggy.
Checking in a PCO-S’ blog, I wish fashion was all she had to be concerned about…
I hope things get better for her soon.

eBay Stores for Spanx Bras, that never seem to go on sale

Looking at this for a while, I notice that short of discounts on your whole order, one cannot get a price break on Spanx bras.

Bigger Bras, to your right, carries many fine full figure bras, and has an apparently permanent, at least 10% off discount available. Sadly, they do not carry Spanx…

Read on to find Spanx bras at half price, or possibly less!

If you wear bras in sizes 32 to 36A to DD, 38B to DD, 40 and 42C to DD you might want to try Spanx Bra-llelujah, full coverage, front closure underwire bras. They get great reviews at Her Room, where they are the winner of the Undies Award for Best Average T shirt bra for 2010.

You click on this picture to shop for them at Her Room, or just check out the reviews.
Or you can use this New Spanx bras at eBay stores link,
  • Narrow down your search using their bra band and cup size selections in the left column
  • Find them for about half price at Buy it Now Prices, much less at bid prices.
Now if they would just make them in larger than DD cup sizes...

Limited Edition Plus Size Corsets on Sale

Now and then on our lingerie page I mention how original Fredericks of Hollywood’s plus size lingerie is. In recent months I see they have put a link to their Plus size section at their top horizontal menu bar! Sometimes it goes into hiding, it seems.

Now they have many new colors, and a few new styles of their popular Dream plus size corsets, two are among the limited edition ones I will show further down. They also have other new corset styles in either sizes up to 44 or Extra Large!

These two corsets are similar to Fredericks’ Exxtreme Cleavage full figure bras and come in sizes up to extra large! Like the bra, they both have removable pads.

This is their gold and mesh, corset for the summer of 2011. It has a side hook and eye closure.
This one was in plus size corsets.
This flocked tiny dot, lace trimmed corset is another of these styles. This one has a back hook and eye closure. I found this one in Spring Corsets, but it is not in the plus size corset section. It pays to look around apparently.
Both have adjustable straps and like, apparently, all Fredericks Corsets, they come with detachable adjustable garters and come with matching G-strings.
This swirl print corset is one of the new styles of the above-mentioned Dream Corsets. It is one of the limited edition styles and comes in sizes up to 44.
Here is the new Halter Dream corset style in it’s limited print version.
Fredericks still has their popular Renaissance plus size corsets and Lace Inset plus size bridal corsets, as well as other styles.

New, Old, standard or Limited Edition, All of Fredericks' full figure corsets are on sale with prices starting at $48!

Get an Extra 10% Off Shape fx, Plus, a little sizing info about Shape fx

Bare Necessities’ moving sale has Shape fx control apparel on sale, and 6 of the 31 Shape fx styles, (mostly dresses), are in plus sizes 1X to 3X and 16W to 24W. This might not matter too much, as I have recently found out, and will explain further on, Shape fx shapewear is very generously cut!
Their plus sizes shapewear at Bare Necessities sale in start at 25% off and run to 45% Off!

If you use Bare Necessities’ 10% off banner to your right you will probably get an additional 10% Off, as Shape fx styles are not excluded!

On top of that, their styles are so generously cut that, using their size charts; you could end ordering from the smaller, less expensive size range! In this handy, (tummy control, and hourglass shaping), sheath dress below, that is a $15 savings right there!

Clicking on this dress above will take you to it in:
bust, waist, hips in inches
Average sizes;
6 to 18
10 = 36.5, 28.5, 38.5
18 = 43, 35, 45

Their plus sizes for this dress range;
16W to 24W
16W = 44. 38, 46
24W = 53, 46, 54
These, and other Shape fx dresses, are on sale in both size ranges!

Here is why I say they shaping apparel is very generously cut.
I ordered these leggings in a size 1X.

Shape fx sizing for these leggings;
1X = 14W to 16W = 43 – 44, 36 – 38, 44 – 46
The shape I’m in, bust is moot here, 36- 37 waist, 41 hips and a 42 inch gut, (if only there was an official gut measurement…)
These same leggings in average size per size charts
Extra Large = 18 = 43, 35, 45

Owing to my waist and gut measurement, I went with the plus size 1X, for the 36 inch waist, and to allow for my 42 inch gut.
However, I was afraid to go for the 35-inch waist of the average size Extra Large.

I got them in size 1X, (36 – 38 inch waist)
Tried them on
  • A generous 3 inch waist band
  • If I put my legs at a normal together, and took a step, they slid down my legs, in my first step.
  • Between the generous sizing, and the 3 inch waist band, not a chance of muffin top!

I will have to exchange them for an average large.

Didn’t I know the hips would be, perhaps, depending on how much stretch was involved, floating on me? It being shapewear, figured it would at least, perhaps skim my hip, if not actually hug them.
Having an inverted triangle shape I know I would be many sizes smaller to actually get a fit there. in Shape fx sizes for example, my hips are an average large size.

So if you have to compensate for gut size, still go down when ordering Shape fx, their leggings anyway.

Also of note, regarding these leggings;
I was hoping for a shaping, yet light, as in the wind would go through them, leggings to wear with spring and summer tunics and dresses.

These leggings are made of a heavy material. It has a good amount of rigidity. To wear as I had planned, they would be perfect for early to mid spring and fall!

Unlike my Lytess legging, these Shape fx legging are opaque.

The Lytess leggings are excluded from Bare Necessities 10% off banner offer to your right.
They are not in the moving sale either…
Today, checking my Lytess at eBay stores link a bit more than half way down in the right column here, they do not have very good eBay store prices either.

However, looking around, Bare Necessities does have the average price on them I am finding today, when you allow for shipping at other places $70, but with Free Shipping. Other places, eBay stores, One Stop Plus, after the discount, with the shipping, still comes out to about $70

Lytess seems to have a variety of legging styles. I think these are the same as mine. If they are, they would be perfect for summer, yet not really shaping, skin conditioning and extra comfy, but sadly pricey…

Uniquely detailed Women’s Blazers in Plus Size Fashions

I am finding original suit jacket styles at Roamans, (on our home page at, Jessica London, and Baby Phat, featured a bit down our urban fashion page.

I also found two excellent retro (Coco Chanel, Jackie O), blazers and suits, we feature near the top of our women’s suits page, by Igigi and Roamans.

I was quite taken with them all, but I feel this Apple Bottoms’ Kendra Twill Blazer below leaves them all in the dust!

Think of it: An Empire waist blazer, with unique back belting for even more shaping, and four pockets! This blazer comes in sizes 1X to 3X. Click on it, and Check out the back view, at More Views, to the lower left corner of its picture at Apple Bottoms!
I have had the most awful time getting a nice suit jacket, of any kind, since I became full figured. It seems most look like square sacks on me.

I believe the empire waist and back belting combined will handle this extreme lack of shaping problem. I just hope there is one in my size when I can afford it! It is not so pricey, but I have lots of other expenses, as I am sure you do too...

If any of you know of other full figure, shape hugging, without full belt, women’s blazers, please comment on this post to me about them!

This unique blazer also has other aspect I love in general:
  • I am a big fan of back vents, but this jacket’s back pleat strikes me as equally great!
  • What mother, or other busy woman would not love stylish ¾ sleeves.
  • Though I have finially made myself carry a purse, I am still a big fan of pockets!

With mention of pockets, the matching cargo capri! These twill capri come in sizes 14 to 24.

I even like the subliminal plaid burnout print top they feature with this!
These are all part of Apple Bottoms’ GI Jane collection which features a great flowing (with pockets!), and more curve hugging tops as well as jeans, capri and plus size dresses too!

After years of this jacket problem I have had, I hope I can swing at least the jacket before it goes out of stock in my size!

20% to 30% Off Full Figure Bras, and more at Bare Necessities

If you click on Bare Necessities’ 10% Off banner in the right column here, you will find they are having a 20% to 25% Off Moving Sale. If you go to their sale section you will find 170 full figure bras, and that’s just the bras in this sale’s plus size section. You will find 11 pages of Large cup size bras in the sale’s DD+ bras section of this sale!

If your brand is not among the excluded from the extra 10% off just using that banner to your right gives you, you can get great bras, shapewear, swimwear and more at 30% Off!

Here are two bra’s by brands that are not excluded from this extra 10% Off, by just using the banner, deal:

Felina’s alluring demi cup full figure bras below are on sale at $25.60, before the extra 10% off, and come in 3 colors in sizes 32 to 40B to DDD!

These bras have over 100 ratings averaging 4 stars at Her Room, where the review reading is the best, as in most descriptive, nearly without fail!

Bali’s, perhaps most popular Satin Tracings plus size bras are now just $25.50 in all five colors at 25% off. Bare Necessities has them in sizes 34C to DDD, 36 to 42D to G, 44G, 46D and DD and 48 and 50D! These and other Bali bras are on sale at Bare Necessities, and eligible for the extra 10% discount!

Just because favorite brands like Panache, Chantelle and the like are excluded from the extra 10% off, does not mean the sale is not worth checking out!
Fantasie’s Serene large cup bras, now just $46.40 in all three colors in sizes 30 to 38D to GG and 40D to G!

You will also find the usual, great saving in just one color deal that I find quite often at Bare Necessities. Like Chantelle’s C-Chic full figure T shirt bras, now just $27, in its fig color. That is 60% off! Great if you catch it when your size is still in stock and well worth the look-and-see!

In the interest of getting this info to you while the most bras and such are in stock, I will stop rambling on.
